Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional School

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools -

Our chil­dren started at AIS in 2015 when we re­lo­cated from a two-year stint liv­ing in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia. I’m im­pressed by the pas­sion and com­mit­ment shown by the teach­ers to help our kids achieve their best. AIS has high-qual­ity teach­ers and de­liv­ers a world-class pro­gramme. It’s re­as­sur­ing to know that in the past few years the Year 12 re­sults have been ex­cel­lent. Our chil­dren are also very pas­sion­ate about sport. The AIS Sports depart­ment pro­vides a wide and in­clu­sive pro­gramme and our kids have loved be­ing a part of dif­fer­ent teams, par­tic­i­pat­ing at vary­ing lev­els in Sin­ga­pore and over­seas. Sports in­clude bas­ket­ball, rugby, foot­ball, net­ball and vol­ley­ball, to name a few. Se­nior stu­dents also have the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in the Athlete De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram, which teaches kids about set­ting fit­ness and per­for­mance goals, the im­por­tance of strength and con­di­tion­ing, as well as nu­tri­tion and per­sonal com­mit­ment to achiev­ing in­di­vid­ual goals. Hav­ing four chil­dren, it was im­por­tant for us to find a school that could meet their var­i­ous in­ter­ests. We wanted a school that is car­ing and nur­tur­ing when needed, but also chal­leng­ing and dy­namic. We wanted a school that would pre­pare our kids as much as pos­si­ble for univer­sity. I would rec­om­mend AIS to fam­i­lies who are look­ing for a well-rounded and solid ed­u­ca­tion. Learn­ing cov­ers many ar­eas – mu­sic, lan­guage, art and drama, sport – but with­out ne­glect­ing aca­demic per­for­mance and social re­spon­si­bil­ity. The AIS par­ent com­mu­nity is also welcoming and em­brac­ing. Fi­nally, AIS is a school with a height­ened vibe and en­ergy – there’s al­ways some­thing in­ter­est­ing and fun go­ing
